The goal of oral cancer screening is to identify mouth cancer early, when there is a greater chance for a cure. Looking for cancer before a person has any symptoms may mean the resulting cancer will be easier to treat. By the time symptoms appear, cancer may have begun to spread leading to more aggressive and painful therapies.
